A comment received from one of our Facing the Mortgage Crisis programs:
THANK you so much for the informative information you presented on the St Louis area foreclosure issues facing many of us. Because of your broadcast I FINALLY knew where to turn for help and assistance. I only wish the broadcasts had been much earlier in the year. Perhaps then I wouldn’t find my husband and me in the situation we are now in.
The very next day after the first broadcast we contacted Beyond Housing and made an appointment. As was stated in the broadcast and on the phone we had all the information with us that was required. Linda Ingram was wonderful. She did not look down her nose at us, she treated us with dignity in a very embarrassing financial situation, she was able to contact people at the mortgage company I was never able to get through to and now, with her help, someone is finally looking at our situation and trying to help us with a modification.
Linda was also able to give us some other tips and pointers. She gave us lots of information including Angel Food Ministries, which I plan on calling and placing an order with in August. I know there was a brief clip on TV about Angel Food Ministries, but most people probably feel it is for lower income families – it isn’t.
Once again – THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR INFORMATIVE PANEL AND A SPECIAL THANKS TO RUTH EZELL FOR A GREAT PRESENTATION AND THE RESPECTIVE REPRESENTATIVES FROM THE VARIOUS AGENCIES.
